Sophomore Kevin Daniels sets his sights on 
perfecting a still-life drawing for his portfolio 
during art. 



For the Southbridge High 
student, goals are an unavoid- 
able fact of life. Everyone from 
our parents to our teachers and 
friends are instrumental in our 
setting goals and helping us to 
reach them. But throughout 
our high school career, we tend 
to lose sight of these seemingly 
unattainable ideals. And with 
all the distractions we're faced 
with daily, who can blame us? 
There's the big test tomorrow, 
the big date Friday night, and 
the big game Saturday after- 
noon. But all of these in their 
own way help propel us to our 
target; they help us hit our 
bull's-eye.

Friday Night, Where To Go? 



It's Friday night and the eternal 
question echoes from parked conver- 
tibles: "Well, what do you want to 
do?" 

Unfortunately, in Southbridge, 
there's not much to do. Sure, you can 
always see a flick, but one can only 
take so much popcorn. What's a Pio- 
neer to do? Hang out at SHS, of 
course! 

On the school grounds one can 
reminisce with old friends and make 
new ones, all within sight of the fa- 
miliar Cole Trade facade. However, 
the police force does not view this 
premature high school reunion with 
the same fondness as the partici- 
pants. So off you go, looking for a 
new hang-out. 




Hanging out at the school are Peter Maldon- 
ado, Kelly Sullivan, Matt Lazure, Kori Brous- 
seau, and Jason Ferron.

Festival Initiates Freshmen 



The weekend encompassing Sep- 
tember 9, 10, and 11 signified the re- 
turn of an annual rite of passage for 
Southbridge High freshmen — the 
Notre Dame Fall Festival. 

Traditionally, the Fall Festival 
has served the seniors with an oppor- 
tunity to induct the incoming fresh- 
men into the fraternal atmosphere 
that permeates Southbridge High 
with a practice that has been used 
since our parents' high school days 
— hazing. 

Of course, our parents' methods 
were more subtle than ours today. In 
the past, initiation took the form of 
book-carrying and class ring-kissing. 
Today, the initiation of choice con- 
sists of the application of a Pioneer- 
red lipstick to the faces of freshmen, 
with cryptic markings that read "89" 
and "Seniors." 

In the past few years, hazing has 
seen a rapid demise due to the en- 
forcement of a law forbidding its 
practice, leading one to wonder: In 
four years, the freshmen and seniors 
will still be around, but will initi- 
ation still exist? Any answers, class 
of 1992? 



Kristen Asselin and Tammy Birch are feeling 
fine after a losing bout with lipstick. 





Initiation is the furthest thing from the minds 
of Erika Weberg and Amelia LeBlanc as they 
enjoy themselves at the Fall Festival. 



Festival fun envelops bosom buddies James 
Mateychuck and Vincent Lesniewski.

Where Does The Money Go? 



As the bumper sticker says, "I owe, 
I owe. It's off to work I go." One 
might think this would be the tune 
that Snow White's seven friends 
would be singing if they were en- 
rolled in an American high school 
today. Of course, since they were dia- 
mond miners, meeting their debts 
would prove no problem. 

Not so for the average high school 
student. With the current rate of in- 
flation, the present minimum wage 
paycheck of $3.75 an hour does not 
stretch very far. Luckily, because of 
the present shortage in the young 
adult job market, employers have 
been raising their starting salaries in 
an effort to entice new prospects. At 
McDonald's, for example, one can 
begin employment at approximately 
$5.00 an hour, with raises not so far 
in the future. 

The only surefire way of making 
the money last the month is the hon- 
est way - saving it.

Friends Or Lovers? 



Who said guys and gals couldn't be 
friends? Obviously not a South- 
bridge High student, because platon- 
ic friendships have begun to give ro- 
mantic ones a run for their money. 

Everyday you see members of the 
opposite sex together in the hall- 
ways, but have you ever noticed how 
many of them are not dating? Most 
are in it for the companionship un- 
available in same sex friendships, 
but some have ulterior motives. 
Many students have been known to 
form study groups and then attend 
parties collectively. 

But don't believe the high school 
couple is an extinct species. Many 
students still date; they're simply 
not as high-profile as before.

Woodson to celebrate after a J.V. Football

SHS Smorgasboard 




The lunch bell's harsh ring signals 
the end of fourth block, which also 
means lunchtime for those fortunate 
to have been scheduled for A Lunch. 
The cafeteria, formerly a quiet study 
hall, has undergone a startling meta- 
morphosis. It is now pandemonium 
personified as school supplies are 
tossed on tables to reserve seats for 
slow-poke friends. Chaos reigns as 
meek freshmen are urged to allow 
upperclassmen to cut into the 
lengthy queue. 

As everyone settles down, one is 
suddenly aware of how far away the 
milk cooler is. But not to worry, as 
the line moves fast for the brave who 
are eager to taste the day's meal and 
slow for those who aren't. 

Alas, lunch ends too soon and the 
return to class has begun.

We All Have Our Autographs 



A hushed silence blankets the 
crowd as they enter the parking lot 
with their famous mean machines. 
These are the men behind the cars 
who wash, wax, and buff their auto- 
mobiles like some parents change 
diapers - compulsively. 

They are always willing to extoll 
the virtues of their four-wheeled 
friends. While others boast of speed, 
power, and price, Jason Ferron's fa- 
vorite feature of his VW is, "the 
roomy trunk - great for stuffing in 
friends for drive-in discounts." 

Of course, it is these freshmen who 
are anxiously awaiting the attain- 
ment of their driver's license so that 
they, too, can drive their own mean 
machines.

Halloween Hocus-Pocus 



In the weeks preceding Halloween 
Dress-Up Day, students were in an 
uproar. During an early October 
homeroom period, Student Council 
representatives distributed ballots 
concerning the approaching event. 
The question "Are you interested in 
having Dress-Up Day?" was read 
hastily, and the appropriate response 
was checked. The votes were tabulat- 
ed, and the ayes had it! 

When the fateful day arrived, cos- 
tumed students entered the building 
to the strains of "The Monster 
Mash". The office administration, in 
conjunction with Student Council, 
was attempting to make this Dress- 
Up Day the most memorable ever. 

Walking from class to class was no 
longer a chore, as each corner held an 
amazing sight. Characters from lit-

erature, song, and pop culture 
roamed the school before the gawk- 
ing eyes of unadorned classmates, 
who suddenly felt exposed without a 
costume. 

Finally, after a day of speculation, 
the moment of truth arrived. As the 
afternoon announcements blared 
from the loudspeakers in each class- 
room, a silence filled the air. With so 
many intricate and interpretive cos- 
tumes, how could any judge decide 
upon only one winner? Needless to 
say, no judge could. Several winners 
were chosen, but everyone who par- 
ticipated was declared a winner.

Fanning The Flame 




After a cold, hard 9-6 loss to arch- 
rival Bartlett High School, the semi- 
formal festivities were necessary to 
erase all sadness. 

The semi-formal signified the end 
of the fall sports season. The good, 
the bad, and the could've been sea- 
sons were all remembered on this 
night. No matter what the case, ev- 
eryone enjoyed themselves at the 
semi. 

Flaming red and silver balloons 
decorated the gym, giving it a festive 
flavor. DJ Ada Alicea made sure that 
the warm memories would burn for- 
ever as she played the theme "The 
Flame" by Cheap Trick. 

The evening's highlight occurred 
when the crowd gathered around Ni- 
cholas Giovanello's Elvis imperson- 
ation. To further the crowd's enjoy- 
ment, Show Choir members gave a 
taste of their Macy's Thanksgiving 
Day Parade performance with their 
rendition of "Man in the Mirror" by 
Michael Jackson. 

Overall, the semi-formal was a 
night of forgetting the bad, remem- 
bering the good, and celebrating the 
best at SHS.

When The Last Bell Rings 



One might think that during last 
period all eyes are staring down the 
hands of clocks, urging them to spin 
faster. Not true. Many stay at school 
burning the midnight oil at various 
school activities. 

One can always find the cheer- 
leaders; if they are not practicing 
their repertoire of cheers and rou- 
tines, they can certainly be found 
decorating the school halls and lock- 
ers of team members. 

It is these team members who are 
after school day after day, practicing 
until and beyond the dinner hour. 
Hopefully, these long hours will pay 
off in wins for the Pioneers. 

The Student Council is constantly 
doing something to improve stu- 
dents' lives. Dress-Up Day, the T- 
day bonfire, and the Semi have all 
added to the enjoyment of SHS at- 
tendees. 

So if you see a light on, don't as- 
sume no one's home. Go in and look. 
You might burn the midnight oil 
yourself. 



Students are often found calling for rides 
home after school activities.

Superintendent Retires 



Why would our superintendent 
want to retire? Dr. Kenneth L. John- 
son tells us, "It's my thirty-seventh 
year in education. I'm at the maxi- 
mum retirement benefit age; at my 
age two or three years wouldn't make 
much difference." 

During his time in the community, 
Dr. Johnson experienced many 
changes in the educational system. 
He marvels, "We've survived one of 
the most tumultous decades in edu- 
cation." On the down side he in- 
cludes Proposition 2 1/2 and limited 
state aid for school programs and on 



the positive side, the Mary E. Wells 
Junior High School renovations and 
the reinstitution of summer school. 

To his successor, he advises, "Try 
to involve people in the schools. We 
need more support." He also believes 
we need more K-5 school facilities to 
relieve overcrowding. 

With his years as superintendent 
completed, Dr. Johnson plans to 
move back to the South Shore with 
his wife and apply to several colleges 
as a math instructor. He'll also have 
time for favorite avocations such as 
woodworking and golfing.

Cliffs Notes Versus Classics 



Cliffs Notes and the Classics - a 
rift that has separated students and 
teachers since the substitute study 
guides were introduced. 

While the familiar black-on-yel- 
low patterned pamphlet is intended 
by the publishers to serve as "a sup- 
plementary aid to serious students, 
freeing them from interminable and 
distracting note-taking in class," 
many students use them as a substi- 
tute for the literary text itself, caus- 
ing teachers to take drastic measures. 

Some faculty members require stu- 
dents to read selections not covered 
by the glorified cheat sheets, such as 
Ayn Rand's Anthem. Others pur- 
chase the notes themselves, read 
them thoroughly, and prepare test 
questions whose answers are not 
found in either Cliffs or their scarlet 
cousins, Monarch Notes. 

Who is correct? Only time - and 
tests - will tell.

Night Of Doom 





Worried looks are evident on the faces of stu- 
dents as parents' night approaches. 

Dario Tiberii waits in the lobby for his parents 
to finish their rounds. 



When parents' night was post- 
poned from November 15 to the next 
week due to a field hockey semi-final 
game against Amherst, students 
breathed a collective sigh of relief. 
They had been granted a seven-day 
reprieve to further convince parents 
that teachers were simplistic buf- 
foons who had no idea about what 
they were talking. 

Of course, seven days is not an 
eternity, and on Monday night the 
moment of truth had arrived. Par- 
ents signed in, collected teacher as- 
signments, and went off on their 
merry way. Those students who were 
brave enough to venture along lin- 
gered a safe distance behind their 
parents - what they couldn't hear 
couldn't hurt them. 

On the way out, parents were bom- 
barded with questions from their 
offspring. Most responded with a 
knowing smile as they walked to 
their cars.

Farewell, Mrs. Tersa 




After 20 years of dedication and 
enjoyment, Mrs. Theresa Tersa will 
be retiring this year. During these 
years, Mrs. Tersa has taught reading 
and vocabulary skills to many fortu- 
nate students. She not only taught 
scholastic ability; through her own 
personal anecdotes she related many 
other lessons for practical, life-long 
application. 

On her 20 years at SHS she re- 
vealed, "Styles and dress codes have 
changed a great deal, but the same 
dedicated teachers remain the 
same." The styles and fashions are 
among the many things she will 
miss, along with "the many students 
striving to learn in order to ensure 
themselves a successful future." 

Many memories will remain with 




Above: Mrs. Theresa Tersa assists Rebec- 
ca Benoit with an assignment. 



Below: Mrs. Tersa muses on her years at 
Southbridge High. 



Mrs. Tersa, such as "when I have fi- 
nally gotten a student to believe in 
himself or herself." Throughout her 
career, Mrs. Tersa has noticed some- 
thing special about SHS students: 
"Most want to become the very best 
people they can be; they project a 
certain dignity. They have certainly 
contributed to my growth as a per- 
son." 

After retirement, Mrs. Tersa plans 
to spend her time reading, studying 
philosophy, traveling, visiting her 
children and grandchildren, and pur- 
suing many other hobbies. One can 
truly understand what she means 
when she exclaims, "I'm never 
bored!" 

Thank you, Mrs. Tersa, for your 
dedication and caring. Good luck!

Driving 
In My Car 



In Massachusetts, one is 
able to drive at seventeen. 
But who can wait? Not 
many high school students, 
so they can obtain a license 
at sixteen and a half if they 
have attended thirty hours 
of a certified Drivers' Educa- 
tion program. 

Fortunately, Southbridge 
has two such classes. During 
the lessons scheduled every 
three months, prospective 
drivers review rules of the 
road, street signs, and ex- 
amination questions. These 
are on a written test which is 
necessary to obtain a Learn- 
ers' Permit, a requirement 
for the road test. 

It is during this final 
phase that many applicants 
become worried. Will the 




proctor try to trick me? 
What if I turn at the wrong 
time? What if I have to par- 
allel park? 

Normally, the only thing 
that deserves consideration 
is one's stomach, because 
when it's tied in knots, 
there's little hope for the 
driver or the pedestrians. 

Once the license is won, 
then the real fun begins. 
Cruising to and from school, 
all the while waving to 
friends walking in the same 
direction becomes one of 
life's great pleasures. You 
soon forget what it's like to 
walk, until that fateful day 
when your car won't start. 
Welcome to the wheel 
world! 



Instructor Raymond Petrelli demonstrates 
the use of hand signals.

PSAT 
Nightmare 



On November 18, 1988, 
nervous college-bound ju- 
niors and a few scattered 
sophomores entered the li- 
brary and cafeteria in the 
early morning to take the 
pretentious-sounding Pre- 
liminary Scholastic Apti- 
tude Test/National Merit 
Scholarship Qualifying 
Test. 

Of course, all present real- 
ized that their results could 
very well have an impact on 
their futures, as the PSAT 
measured their probable 
score on the SAT, which 
many colleges and scholar- 
ship boards use as a barom- 
eter for acceptance. 

Although you are told 
that the one hour and forty 
minute multiple choice test 
won't make or break you, 




you're unsure about the 
stormy horizon lying in wait 
outside the room's windows. 
After the test form is filled 
out with the information 
you've known since kinder- 
garten, the countdown be- 
gins. 

Start! You're off, arbitrar- 
ily selecting A, B, C, or D in 
order to form an attractive 
pattern. Remember doing 
this on elementary IOWA 
tests? 

In December the test-tak- 
ers gathered to hear a pre- 
sentation and collect their 
results, which were either 
shown off or stuffed in pock- 
ets. As the groans died 
down, a little thought 
clicked in the back of many 
minds: Wait! Aren't SATs in 
May? 

Michael Bousquet and Mandi Bruce are 
not remotely concerned over the PSATs 
that took control of their lives in October 
while performing in their class skit.

Sweet Sixteen - 
Finally! 



While many Spanish- 
speaking students celebrate 
their sweet fifteen, the ma- 
jority of sophomores antici- 
pate the arrival of their up- 
coming sixteenth birthday 
with as much excitement as 
their mothers before them. 

But any mother would be 
sure to notice the lack of 
fanfare surrounding her 
daughter's coming of age. 
Whereas girls of the fifties 
and sixties prepared for a 
large celebration with all of 
their friends and relatives 
and shopped for a gown to 
wear while in attendance at 
a debutante ball, today's girl 
will plan a small get-togeth- 
er with her closest friends to 
go out, whether it be simply 




to area malls for a shopping 
expedition or up north for 
an elaborate ski-weekend. 

While some die-hard nos- 
talgists are as reluctant to 
wave good-bye to debs as 
they were to drive-in the- 
aters, some feel the change is 
all for the better. One of 
these is the parent, who no 
longer has to feel obligated 
to shell out payments to 
boutiques, caterers, and 
country clubs. The other is 
the teenager herself, who 
doesn't have to impress her 
peers during a whirlwind of 
social activities. 

Who knows? Maybe we'll 
return to the pve-Father 
Knows Best days after all. 



Friends congratulate Angela Benoit on her 
January birthday.

So, Did You See 
My Class Ring? 



Traditionally, sophomore 
year has been the time to or- 
der class rings for their arri- 
val in junior year, leaving 
the purchasers a full two 
years to flutter their ring 
fingers in the face of under- 
classmen. 

But aggressive marketing 
tactics have changed all 
that. Instead, freshmen re- 
ceive elaborate brochures 
from Jostens, the self-pro- 
claimed America's Class 
Ring company. Inside, the 
flustered freshman is faced 
with five collections, eight 
metals, twelve stones, and 
almost two-hundred Design- 
A-Sides. With all these op- 
tions, it's no wonder that 
many shoppers choose to go 
to area jewelers, which offer 




v 



Art-Carved and Gold Lance 
rings. 

Why all this trouble? It's 
simply the price one must 
pay in order to enter the 
next stage of high school life: 
If you don't have a ring, how 
can you exchange it with 
your new love? 

Speaking of prices, while 
the costs may seem prohibi- 
tive, many students feel it is 
all worth it to have a spark- 
ling reminder of their high 
school years. Besides, if 
you're going to endure all 
the pain and suffering of de- 
cision-making, at least you'll 
receive your ring a year ear- 
lier, giving you even more 
time to show off that heavy 
ring finger. 

Has sophomore Melanie Richard pur- 
chased her class ring yet?

Glued To The Tube 



The couch potato epidem- 
ic has been spreading slowly 
across America. As it set its 
many eyes upon South- 
bridge, parents picked up 
family-help magazines with 
articles along the lines of "Is 
your child obese? Look to 
your television!" and "Can 
Johnny read? Not if he's 
watching the tv!" 

While these titles are ex- 
aggerated, they accurately 
capture the flavor of this 
panic. But has our bus com- 
pany added fuel to the fire? 
With school beginning and 
ending a quarter of an hour 
earlier to facilitate student 
delivery, Southbridge pupils 
are left with an extra fifteen 
minutes of viewing time. 

Should this make much of 




a difference? Not to us tv 
laymen, but to those who 
conduct studies on viewing 
habits, it could be the differ- 
ence of an entire grade. 

Where do they find these 
figures? The same place 
Nielsen consistently proves 
that programs no one watch- 
es are more popular than 
those whose plot synopses 
are traded weekly among 
students? The same place 
where political opponents 
continually trade places in 
public opinion polls? Most 
likely. 

So should those articles be 
taken seriously? To some ex- 
tent, yes. But remember that 
they are studies, not proven 
fact. 



Freshman Lisa Boisvert elects to attend an 
SHS football rather than join the ranks of 
America's couch potatoes.

On Becoming A 
Pioneer 



How to become a pioneer? 
According to Funk & Wag- 
nails, you must be "one of 
the first explorers, settlers, 
or colonists of a new country 
or region." 

So for freshmen to be con- 
sidered pioneers, they must 
visit unknown territory - at 
least one game during each 
sporting season, an easy feat 
for three-letter athletes. But 
what about the rest? They 
often journey to every foot- 
ball game religiously, where 
they are inducted into the 
SHS spirit along with con- 
verts from other grades who 
have delayed their baptism. 

Once there, they partici- 
pate in various practices, 
such as heckling the other 




team during time-outs, re- 
garding the other team's 
cheerleaders with obvious 
disdain, and blocking their 
ears against the intrusive 
sounds of a rival's below-par 
band. However, as any SHS 
faction takes the field, it be- 
comes necessary to stomp, 
holler, and cheer until the 
throat is hoarse or the 
bleachers collapse, whichev- 
er comes first. 

The final test comes dur- 
ing half-time, where you not 
only order your refresh- 
ments, but the ones of those 
around you. In the end you 
leave, with cigarette ashes 
and palm-shaped blades of 
grass on your soles.

Rejuvenated Running 



For the past several years, the SHS 
cross country team had been on a 
decline. Now, thanks to the dedica- 
tion of Coach John Hoogasian and an 
influx of new team members, the 
program is on an upswing. Who 
could not help noticing Hoogasian 
recruiting promising athletes from 
his gym classes and training them 
with the team in order to expand the 
membership of his running crew? 
The devotion of all involved helped 
to achieve marginal success, as the 
team procured an 8-7 overall record, 
and an outstanding 8-2 conference 
record.

One Moment In Time 



On November 15, 1988, the varsity 
field hockey team traveled to Smith 
College to compete with the Amherst 
Regional Hurricanes for the right to 
compete in the state finals. 

After a scoreless first half, Am- 
herst picked up a 1-0 lead just 1:41 
into the second half. It was Nicolle 
LaBarge who evened it up with a 
short shot from 12 feet out. However, 
the lead didn't last as Amherst rifled 
in another goal after a mere 27 sec- 
onds of play. 

Again, Nicolle LaBarge tied it up 
after knocking home a rebound. 
With the sudden Southbridge mo- 
mentum and a possible overtime 
looming, Jennifer Ferron came to the 
rescue on a setup by Mandi Bruce to 
win the match 3-2. 

Unfortunately, the team could not 
conquer the Bellingham Hawks in 
the state finals at WPI on November 
18, 1988. They finished the regular 
season with a 19-1 record and a post- 
season record of 21-2. The JV's had a 
7-3-3 record.

With the retirement of former var-

JV coach Tom Kruczek moved in to 
head a team that had lost many of its 
former players. Although the squad 
did its best in an adverse situation, 
determination and practice were not 
enough to hold back tough teams like 
the Auburn Dandies.

son with a lackluster 3-13 record.

better with their 5-10-2 record.

undefeated Clinton was post-poned, 
the energy began to drain. After an 
18-29 loss, the team went on to de- 
feat Auburn 35-6, their last win of 
the season. 

It was downhill from there, with 
losses to rivals Tantasqua and Bart- 
lett, resulting in a 4-6 overall. The 
JV's fared better, with a 6-2 record.

Senior Sweep Thwarted 




During this year's Thanksgiving 
Rally, class rivalries were at an all- 
time high. Closely guarded skit plots 
and poster ideas were the order of 
the preceding weeks, as each class at- 
tempted to outdo the other. 

The seniors were hoping to contin- 
ue their tradition of sweeping the 
rally, but everyone else was doing 
their best to prevent it. The fresh- 
men attempted to with their inter- 
pretation of Saturday Night Live!, 
including Hans and Franz. The ju- 
niors clicked on MTV's game show, 
Remote Control, with a new cate- 
gory, Name That Teacher. But it was 
the sophomores who gave the seniors 
a run for their money, with Welcome 
to the Jungle, which included every- 
one you could meet in the jungle, in- 
cluding a war-monging tribe of Bart- 
lett Indians. 

In the end, the seniors prevailed 
with E.T.-.The Adventure Continues, 
but the juniors prevented the Turkey 
Day takeover with a surprise win in 
the yelling competition.

gasian and Mrs. Diane Allard) entertain the

Squad Excites Team, Fans 



While their primary purpose was 
to encourage the team, one couldn't 
help noticing their overwhelming 
urge to perform perfected routines 
before applauding fans. 

And who could blame them? 
Cheerleading has become a more 
fan-oriented event as the sport has 
moved from simple hand-clap side- 
line cheers to intricate half-time 
dance numbers. Needless to say, SHS 
squads have followed suit under the 
direction of coaches Miss Kerry 
Varin and Mrs. Donna Bernadone. 

During a game, the crowd was al- 
ways aware of team rivalry. But 
could they sense competition be- 
tween the teams' cheerleaders? Ei- 
ther way, Pioneer fans were certain 
to feel pride for those supporting the 
team.

Pioneers, New Coach Rebuild 




If the task of blowing former coach 
Walter Gosk's whistle was tough, Mr. 
James Kane was faced with a team of 
talented athletes who had simply not 
seen enough action on the varsity 
level. 

Since last year's starters were sen- 
iors who had gone throughout high 
school together, the other players 
were used to facing less intense ac- 
tion. The sudden thrust to the fore- 
front was difficult at first, especially 
for sophomore members, but the ef- 
fort was commendable, as the team 
garnered a moderate record.

Carryover Evident In Girls 



With several returning starters, 
varsity coach Jane Cormier knew she 
had a powerful team. After recruiting 
girls from the JV ranks, she began 
drills in preparation for the first 
game. Dedication paid off, and a 
string of wins began. 

Girls from the fall season's field 
hockey squad were another contri- 
buting factor. It was understandable 
that they didn't want to fall from 
their high plateau. 

Coach Greg Tucker's JV girls 
steadily improved throughout the 
season.

Chorus Bites Big Apple 




Anyone walking past SHS before 
Thanksgiving would have noticed 
that the lights were on in the Music 
Department. This was because the 
Crimson Classics, excited about at- 
tending the Macy's Day Parade, had 
been rehearsing weekly. 

The show choir was invited be- 
cause of its previous involvement in 
the Bay State Festivals. One 
wouldn't be surprised to learn that 
all were extremely excited about at- 
tending. Scott Peck, vice-president 
of the chorus council, said, "It was 
awesome to be asked, unbelievable, a 
chance of a lifetime." 

While in New York the singers at- 



tended the Broadway musical A 
Chorus Line, where they met several 
of the production's members. After- 
wards they visited the Statue of Li- 
berty, Radio City Music Hall, and 
Macy's Department Store. 

On Thanksgiving morning, it was 
evident that the two months of re- 
hearsal had paid off. Show choirs 
from around the nation joined in the 
musical number that they had each 
been practicing separately. Needless 
to say, the choirs blended harmon- 
iously before a nation-wide televi- 
sion audience, where the Crimson 
Classics sang above the rest in order 
to make their fellow Pioneers proud. 








The concert choir discusses the basic concepts Jennifer Bastien prepares her solo for the an- 
of musical theory. nual Christmas concert.

Big Red Plays On 



Once again, the Big Red Pioneer 
Band was there at nearly every foot- 
ball game, absent only for music 
competitions. 

And it was these that made them 
renowned among SHS students. Dur- 
ing the year, the band marched in 
many parades; while some were lo- 
cal, others were in "exotic" locales 
such as Auburn and Boston. With 
director John Libera, they partici- 
pated in the Dual County Music Fes- 
tival and springtime's Music In The 
Round. 

Drummer Glen Misiaszek pauses briefly. 




Most band students choose to attend lessons 
daily as an elective.

Student Council Awakens 




With new adviser Linda Jowett, 
the student council began to renew 
old school activities that former stu- 
dents remembered. 

The student council's rebirth in- 
cluded the revival of the bonfire and 
a Christmas concert with perfor- 
mances by the band, chorus, and the 
Debbie Sichols' dancers. New activi- 
ties included the cafeteria Christmas 
tree and angelic messages. 

All ideas, both new and old, were 
well-received by faculty and stu- 
dents.

When Superintendent of

years Johnson dealt with Pro- 
position 2 1/2, the junior high 
renovations, and elementary 
school restructuring. 

His succesor Arnold Lanni 
became active in the school 
system during early winter, 
and one was always aware of 
his presence. You can sight 
him in the hallways and cafe- 
teria, soliciting student opin- 
ions. He can be found visiting

Fairway Foes 




Once again, the golf team proved 
to be Southbridge High's secret 
weapon in its arsenal of spring 
teams. After claiming the Border 
Conference championship, the team 
entered District competition. Here 
they did not fare well, although 
sophomore Aaron Berthiaume 
played in state competition. Under 
the direction of coach Bill Butcher, 
the team was able to procure a 15-1 
record.

For all the Southbridge High 
teams that played on a diamond, it 
was truly a rough spring. Neverthe- 
less, all improved steadily, and each 
team was able to claim a personal 
victory in the realm of experience. 
After yet another building year, the 
teams' underclassmen are certain to 
prepare for a string of victories in 
the seasons to come.

End Of Year Fun 



Spring fever hits virtually every- 
one, especially seniors. Witness the 
senior slump. In addition, upper- 
classmen have the option of attend- 
ing the Senior Banquet on Boston 
Harbor, where they can experience 
the wonder of moonlight dining on 
The Spirit Of Boston. Another 
choice is an excursion to Florida 
and the magic of Grad Nite. While 
here, seniors can tour the Magic 
Kingdom or spend the day at River 
Country. But when the park closes, 
seniors from the entire country can 
dance to live performers such as 
Will To Power, New Kids On The 
Block, and Samantha Fox.

Prom Is Revamped 



The 1989 prom saw some remark- 
able changes with the junior class. 
Of course, the usual gowns, tuxes, 
and limos were still there, but their 
venue had changed. After voting on 
the theme "Hold On To The 
Nights", the prom committee voted 
to move the prom to Hogan Center, 
on the Holy Cross campus. Another 
category in the royalty divisions 
was instituted as well. Along with 
the traditional King and Queen, 
there would be a Prince and Prin- 
cess. These changes helped to inject 
the prom with a vitality to make it a 
night all would hold on to.

Grads Rained On 



For underclassmen, Class Day is 
simply another day of senior hom- 
age — an eternity of awards, ap- 
plause, remember when's, applause, 
wills, applause, prophechies, and 
more applause. But for the seniors, 
it is a pre-graduation farewell to- 
high school friends and teachers — 
a dress rehearsal for G-day. 

As it turned out, no amount of 
rehearsal would prepare the seniors 
for the surprise storm that soaked 
McMahon Field and forced the 
commencement that had already 
begun indoors.
